WHAT DOES ROOT MEANS?/ROOTING A PHONE#

Updated: Sep 13, 2019


ROOT WE MUST HAVE HEARD THIS TERM FROM OUR LOCALITY/AMBIANCE. SOMEHOW THE USER HAVE GOT WRONG INFORMATION REGARDING IT. FOR EG :-THEY SAY THAT "IT IS HARMFUL FOR YOUR DEVICE", ETC., SO WE ARE HERE TO EXPLAIN YOU ALL ABOUT ROOT#



#ROOT-WHICH ALLOWS SYSTEM MODIFICATION!


"ROOT" WHICH IN DEFAULT SPECIFIES THAT IT IS SOMETHING REGARDING ROOT FOLDER WHICH IS PRESENT IN OUR DEVICE.ROOTING IS NOTHING BUT ACCESSING ROOT FOLDER OF DEVICE, WHICH ALLOWS USER TO MODIFY IT!


SO IT IS A PROCESS TO ATTAIN ROOT ACCESS TO THE ANDROID OR IOS SYSTEM(FOR "IOS" ROOT IS TERMED AS JAIL BREAKING).IT GIVES USER TO MODIFY THE SOFTWARE CODE ON DEVICE WHICH THE MANUFACTURER WONT ALLOW US TO DO!


SO INSHORT WE CAN SAY THAT ROOTING IS NOTHING BUT GETTING PERMISSION TO ACCESS DEVICE ROOT FOLDER FOR MODIFICATIONS AND STUFF!!


ADVANTAGES:-

  • IT GIVES USER TO MODIFY SYSTEM FILES/CODE

  • IT GIVES ACCESS TO THIRD PARTY THEME ENGINE LIKE SUBSTRATUM THEME ENGINE

  • KERNEL AUDITOR:-IT GIVES USER TO MODIFY VALUES OF KERNEL, EG:-WE CAN OVERCLOCK OUR DEVICE FOR BEST PERFORMANCE AVAILABLE OR WE CAN UNDER-CLOCK IT FOR LESS HEATING AND BETTER BATTERY LIFE!


DISADVANTAGES:-


  • DEVICE WARRANTY VOIDS!

  • EXCESS MODIFICATIONS TO SYSTEM CAN HARM YOUR DEVICE!
